Despite lengthy negotiations between the two sides, the Winnipeg Jets and Michal Frolik have not been able to see eye-to-eye in terms of a fair contract value.
What has likely caused the rift is the fact Frolik see himself as a top-six forward, which is the role he fills on the current Jets, but the team sees him as more of a depth piece on a good team. Winnipeg GM Tim Cheveldayoff remains optimistic about the possibility of reaching a long-term pact, saying "We've had many, many discussion's with Michael's agent (Allan Walsh) about a multi-year deal. We both felt it was best to agree to a one-year deal at this time and continue conversations as we move forward." Because the two sides appear far apart, it will be interesting to see if a long-term agreement can reached before Frolik gains UFA status next summer. Aug 3 - 9:10 AM

The two sides agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million contract for the 2014-15 to avoid an arbitration hearing. However, Frolik is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Despite the assurances that the two sides will try to make something work during the season, it's not a great sign that they couldn't agree to a longer-term deal this summer.

We'll see what happens. The coach was fine. It's always about the one game in the quarterfinal and we got beat out. It's always bad when you lose that game." The Czechs made some questionable calls leading into and during the tournament. Frolik didn't have a point in five games in Sochi and be averaged 10:46 of ice time per match.
